WP Tiles by default uses the
large image size provided by WordPress. This is the same size as you would get when you insert an image into a page and select 'Large' for its size. However, users (that's you!) can change this size in their admin panel (in Settings -> Media). If the
large size is smaller than the largest tile, the images will be stretched (proportionally).
There are 3 ways out:
See the previous question! WP Tiles uses the
large image size in WordPress by default. If that size is gigantic, or if you have set WP Tiles to use an even larger size (like
full), then WP Tiles will load heavy images. Adjusting the image size down should make your website load faster again.
By default, WP Tiles will try its hardest to select an image from your posts, in this order: 1. Featured Image 2. First attached image 3. First image in post itself
If you want to limit this, there are 3 options, either in the admin panel (WP Tiles -> Image Settings), or in the shortcode (
attached_only - Don't look inside post content for image
Featured Image Only
featured_only - Only use Featured Image
Only show image for Media Posts
attachment_only - Don't show image, unless the post itself is a media post
Yes! The content of the tiles is determined by the 'byline template'. As with everything in WP Tiles, you can either set the template in the options panel, or put it in the shortcode directly. In the shortcode use the
byline_template attribute for the byline on image tiles. Use
byline_template_textonly for bylines on text-only tiles.
In the template, wherever you put the following tags, they will be replaced by content from the post:
%title%, %content%, %date%, %excerpt%, %link%, %author%, %featured_image%- All taken from the post
%categories%- Comma separated list of categories
%category_links%- Like above, but with links
%tags, %tag_links%- Same as categories
%meta:META_KEY%- Replace META_KEY by the meta key you want to display
Also see this page in our documentation.
